Abandoned Newborn Found in Nativity Manger

MR says: We are so glad this baby is safe and that it can now find a loving home. In fact, it will be part of making a Christmas miracle and the best possible gift for one lucky couple.

“A young couple in our parish would love to adopt this child and keep this gift in our community," said Father Christopher Ryan Heanue, a priest at the church. "It would make a great Christmas miracle."

A newborn with his umbilical cord still attached was found lying in a manger at a New York church, police said on Tuesday.

At Holy Child Jesus Church in the borough of Queens on Monday, the custodian found the crying infant wrapped in towels in the indoor nativity scene he had set up just before his lunch break, a New York police spokesman said.
